The Infrastructure of a library

December 3, 2018

The infrastructure of the library is a small collection of my contemplations on libraries as an infrastructural system, how it works, what its different parts are and how they interact to support and maintain the infrastructure.

The library is an infrastructure of information and knowledge and its function, or role, is to store and convey that knowledge.

The library is also a social infrastructure and reflects its society at each time.
